Victoria, the daughter of a senior journalist in Nigeria, Senan Murray, has gone missing.
Victoria, a 17-year-old student of Holy Child College, Ikoyi, Lagos State, was last seen as she left for school two weeks ago.
She lives not too far from the school with her parents at Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Murray, who has worked for both The PUNCH and the British Broadcasting Corporation, on Tuesday wrote on Facebook: “Victoria Murray, 17, is my daughter. I reckon she’s about 6ft tall because she’s taller than me. Tomorrow will make it two weeks since she disappeared, we believe, on her way to school. She is a student of Holy Child College, Ikoyi, Lagos. Until she went missing, Victoria lived with the rest of the family in Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos.
“To go to school, Victoria would normally take the bus from Sand Fill bus stop along the Lekki-Epe Expressway to Obalende as her school is located just at the edge of Ikoyi, next door to St Gregory’s College.
“We have since reported Victoria’s disappearance to the Police, who assure us that they are doing their best to find our daughter.
“Vicky, as we call her, is rather introverted and soft-spoken with a slender body type. She is quite light complexioned and wears close-cropped hair in a fashion recommended by her school. She speaks only English and does not have any tribal marks.
“Anyone with any information about Victoria should please contact the nearest police station or me.
